South Canterbury

about the region

 

South Canterbury claims Aoraki Mount Cook National Park and all within, as its backyard. With a significant chunk of the Southern Alps and Main Divide within its reach, the region has fantastic access to the big hills. There are also several rock crags within spitting distance and skiing, both on and off-piste.


The section

 

Mid-week Wall/Crag Climbing

Crag Climbing runs during summer from 6pm until dark starting at Spur Road. For all climbing nights please text Kelly 021 243 7381 to let her know if you wish to climb. Due to low numbers at climbing nights she will only be there if she has confirmation of your attendance.
